Be a Gold Digger! …It Honors God

This is part 2 of my series on excellence.  I encourage you to read Part 1: Battling the “that’s good enough for a church” Attitude, first.  I said it in that post, and I want to start today’s post with it again: The church has celebrated mediocrity for too long!

iStock_000011103054XSmallAfter I got all fired up last week, I ended with the idea that it dishonors God when we don’t bring our best.  Let’s talk about that.

Imagine an unchurched person walking into church and hearing a person who can’t sing, a speaker who can’t speak, seeing horrible graphics, or hearing a band that can’t play worth a flip, then hear the people proclaim “We did that for Jesus!”

Then they walk out and think, “That’s what they did for Jesus? He died for their sins and that’s the best they can do?”

When God was telling Moses how to build the tabernacle, one thing He consistently did was tell them to overlay everything with Gold.  In other words, God said, “give it your best.”  Gold was the highest standard achievable.  It represented their best.

Everything we do should be overlaid with gold!  Our best.  Because that’s what honors God.  Now our best is different at different levels, but at the end of the day you know wether you really brought your best or not.

Next in the series, I’m going to talk about applying these principles to leadership.  It’s kind of where the rubber meets road.

Have you ever struggled with bringing your best to God every single week?
